I wanted to let you know about Council’s decision to withdraw its radical Revesby Plan, which would have led to large scale rezoning of our area.
As you may be aware, Council has been proposing for several years to make radical changes to the existing zoning rules in Revesby. These rezonings would have allowed the population of Revesby to increase by 7,000 people.
I have been strongly opposed to these changes for years, and have called for the Plan to be abandoned on many occasions. During this time I have held numerous community meetings in Revesby about the need to stop this Plan.
Council has now decided to withdraw its rezoning Plan for Revesby. The Plan was created by the Council, and it has now decided not to proceed with it. This is good news, as the proposed increase in population was excessive and would have changed the nature of Revesby forever.
Council is now required to develop a new Housing Strategy for the area, and it is important that this is done in a sensible, orderly way, that takes into account the unique characteristics of our area. The mistakes of the Revesby Plan must not be repeated.
Over the years many local residents have spoken out against Council’s radical rezoning Plan. I want to thank everyone who has made their voice heard on this important issue.
If you would like to discuss this issue or any other matter with me, please do not hesitate to make contact.
